I have to make a 3-D ambulance on a sheet cake and I am trying to remember, is it a sponge cake that is used for carving a cake or is it a pound cake.  I just haven't done a 3-D cake in so long I can not remember.  And if you know which recipe would be best and want to share, I would greatly appreciate it. I am making this for a friend and she is traveling with it, so I don't want it falling apart on the road.  Thanks

AIf you're cutting a flat cake into the shape of something, it doesn't matter much. If it's a standing up 3d ambulance and you don't have much experience with 3d carving, I recommend a firm cake, like pound cake.

Thank you, I thought it was a pound cake, but wanted to be sure.
